I'm trying to find more opportunities to perform magic in front of people, and I'm running into a lot of problems finding the right time and place. School isn't the best setting, and I don't exactly go to a lot of parties. I live in the suburbs, so street performance would probably require travel. Not to mention I do mostly close-up card magic, which I'm not sure lends itself to traditional street performing anyway. I guess my question is, what do amateur magicians do, to get their work out there and create opportunities to perform for new people? What's the best way to move beyond performing for family and friends?
